Grace's brother has disappeared and she misses him, and his music, terribly. One day, she finds herself falling, falling... and wakes up in a strange land where she is as tiny as a bug. Exploring this amazing world, filled with incredible creatures, Grace feels happier than she has done for a long time.


But then she is captured by an evil crab and forced to dive for pearls. Beneath the water Grace hears a familiar tune: could it be her brother? And if so, how can they escape this dreamlike land?


This intriguing, beautiful tale of wonder and sibling love has echoes of Alice in Wonderland in its surreal, atmospheric setting. Martin Widmark's vivid story is brought to life for young children through spectacularly imaginative illustrations by Emilia Dziubak. Martin and Emilia are also the creators of The House of Lost and Found, named a USBBY Best International Book 2019.
Praise for The House of Lost and Found:


 


'Widmark's melancholy story about loneliness gains atmosphere and, ultimately, lift from Dziubak's beautiful illustrations, hand-drawn using colored pencils. Children will pore over the details and delight as Niles banishes murky darkness with light.' -- Kirkus Reviews


 


'A beautifully scripted, illustrated, and uplifting picture book.' -- Midwest Book Review


 


'In this complex and mature tale of reawakening, pages boast dark, richly detailed illustrations aglow with deftly conjured light.' -- Booklist Online


 


'The illustrations are dreamy, reminding me of Rembrandt, each one a work of art… Perfect.'  -- Youth Services Book Review


 


'This is a wonderfully uplifting book about coming to terms with grief and loss, and the power of nature.' -- Juno Magazine
